David Jackson Roberts, 77, of Greenville, died of dementia on Tuesday, August 9, 2022.
Born in Atlanta, GA, he was the son of the late Clarence and Martha Jackson Roberts.
David was a graduate of Emory University and a veteran of the United States Air Force. During his career, he worked for several major insurance companies as a Sales Manager of Retirement Plan Services to small and medium-sized companies. He was an avid golfer from an early age and especially enjoyed annual trips with his golf buddies. A favorite pastime was watching the Carolina Panthers, the Georgia Bulldogs, and Duke basketball. In retirement, David took pleasure in spending more time outdoors, especially in the natural beauty of Seabrook Island, as well as exploring both the U.S. and the world through travel. He was a very good dancer, especially the Shag. Always a true Southern Gentleman, he was devoted to his family and friends. He was kind to everyone and had a very good sense of humor. To his children and grandchildren, he was a great role model and supporter.
He is survived by life partner of 16 years, Marianne Burtis Moorer; two children, Keith David Roberts and Whitney Roberts Blankenship (Christopher); two grandchildren Colton Neal Roberts and Emma Marie Roberts; and a sister, Carol Roberts Hoskins (Thomas).
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his first wife, Joan Roberts.
The family and closest friends will hold a Celebration of Life at a later date.
